Dress appropriately, not provacatively. Keep a positive attitude, and learn your drinks fast. You may have times when you have to cut someone off from any more drinks, be prepared for that. Being a artender can be fun, but you have more responsibility than just serving drinks. You may have to take the keys away from someone, call the cops to break up a fight, or ask someone to leave the bar all together. Be observant as to what is going on while you are working. I think it will be a littel overwhelming at first, but after a day or two, you will probably get yourself ito a routine and be just fine.

great, thanks for the tips. did you take any classes to get started? i'm not sure where you are but here in boston bartending schools/classes are a dime a dozen.
